Social freedom was part of the message of Buddha, Chaitanya, Nanak and Kabir and the saints of Maharashtra….
Social freedom can only be born where the soul of man is large, free and generous, not enslaved to petty aims and thoughts.Social freedom is not a result of social machinery but of the freedom of the human intellect and the nobility of the human soul. A man who follows petty ends cannot feel his brotherhood with his fellows, for he is always striving to raise himself above them and assert petty superiorities.
